Grmph - A single act of carelessness leads to the eternal loss of beauty.

Recently, I arranged for the replacement of my Nikon D70's battery under their recall programme for same. To accomplish this, I filled in an online form using the obvious disposable email address for dealing with Nikon, which I had not used before - "art hyphen nikon at [my usual domain]".

A new battery of a higher spec (as supplied with the new D70s) arrived, all well and good, I thought. Then, tonight, I received a virus mail (definitely not real - as seen here) to that address, from the host d5152dd05.access.telenet.be. So, well done Nikon. You gain points for acting quickly on the recall and providing me with a *better* battery. But lose several million for letting my address get into the hands of a virus. Idiots.

Does [my username] hyphen [somethingelse] at [the usual domain] work for me too?

Not at the moment, but it may well be about to. I will let you know.
